Hiding Bones...

Tillie has become VERY serious in the evenings about her bone. Pitiful girl, she carries it around in her mouth whimpering until she finds the "perfect" spot to "bury" it. Now, a "normal" dog would ACTUALLY bury it, but not Tillie. Do your Havs DIG outside in the dirt? Anywho, Tillie has never even THOUGHT about digging outside. BUT she will "dig" in the couch cushions, a blanket, her bed, my recliner, the toy box... LOL
Anywho, her "perfect spot" for her precious bone is the shoe basket. We have a bench with 3 bins where all the shoes go and she hides it in there. And then digs furiously to bury it, will leave it there for 5 minutes and come and "dig" it back out.
As a first time dog mama this just cracks me up. I'll have to get some pictures next time she does it.

So where does YOUR hav like to "bury" thier bones??

Tammy and Tillie

Amazing..Cicero is just like Tillie and we have so much fun watching him. He tries so hard to find a good place. It's also a game for him. He will put it behind a sofa cushion and come over and look at me. I say, "I can see your bone." He will run get it and put it somewhere else and come look at me again...lol This goes on and on. I love when he will put it in a corner then go get a toy and put on top of it...hahaha He never digs outside but he will take a bone or toy out and put it in the pine straw and use his nose to cover it up...then go back for it in 5 minutes.!!

Are these not fun little furbabies????

You are lucky they never dig outside,Nellie loves to dig,especially when it has just been raining![which in England is pretty much all the time]the messier the better, she comes in with her little nose covered in mud,where she has been shunting the earth about!!she is such a messy girl.Both Dizzie and Nellie, will run around the house looking to find great places to burry or hide new chew sticks, and then they always end up both wanting the same stick even though they each have their own identical one!

Whimsy doesn't seem to want to bury anything! She likes to put her favorite couple of toys and a few chewers by the front door in a pile. She will dig in a blanket, but she doesn't have anything to bury..just digging for the heck of it I guess LOL

My pup does exactly the same thing. He buries bones all over the place - couch cushions, behind pillows, in any blanket mostly. But at this point it's pretty much guaranteed that if you sit down somewhere or move a blanket a bone will fall out. I let my little guy sleep on the bed and there's always 2 or 3 bones 'buried' in the morning.

Stella doesn't dig but she hides anything she doesn't want me to get under my bed. It's amazing what I find under there

yeah your English dogs like their gardening and digging. LOL . Molly goes off somewhere with her new bully sticks and then usually comes back with them. I love the little whining she does too, not knowing where to hide it. So cute.

Yep count Kipling in..it's so incredibly cute and funny and he only does it with his most highly valued chew items...he also pushes the invisible 'dirt' on the couch with his nose towards is item over and over again. So he'll place his stick behind a throw cushion...then he'll push invisible dirt over it for about 20 times and then he'll leave it. It's crazy adorable. I'll have to try to video tape him doing it. He also whimpers if he can't find a good spot.

Abby's bully sticks and Pearly White bones last forever since she usually just tosses them around like a toy. But, when it's brand new she goes crazy trying to find a hiding spot for it, carrying it around whining - so funny! She even "digs" our tile floors!

BTW, when she loses her pearly white underneath the entertainment center she stands there and looks at us until we get the yardstick. Then she gets so excited - she knows what that yardstick is for!
